This post is going to be a little different than the other ones. I love creating various types of content, but sometimes is good to keep it real and share what’s on the heart. Not everything is Instagram fabulous, we deal with daily struggles, challenges, disappointments and it’s good to share those things because we can relate more to others. I want this blog to be about creativity, I want it to be a place where you guys can learn something, relate, be inspire, but I also want to keep it real, and be honest.
October was a rough month. There were some hard moments in my life that I was not ready for. Loosing my dog was the hardest thing, in a few days it will be a month since she passed. I have been trying to stay busy so I won’t be sad, but avoiding sadness is not easy. Just taking a walk around my neighborhood makes me sad because I was so used to walking with her. Also My father got a major surgery, he is recuperating but it has been very hard on him. It’s difficult to see your love ones in pain and I had to make sure I was focused on my him, and not trying to multi-task and think about all the things I had to work on. I had so much peace and I definitely know it was God that kept me together. It’s great to be goal driven, hungry for your dreams but nothing is more important than family and no matter what I will never turn my back on them because they have always been there for me.
Even though my heart was so weak, and I had no inspiration to do anything. I got the opportunity to work with three different brands for some cool campaigns, I got paid for a huge design project I worked on with a brand in LA , and I got back into sewing and making garments which they will be coming soon to the blog, So in the middle of so much there were some major blessings and I am so grateful for them. No one or nothing in life prepares you for death or health challenges, I wish in high school or college they had a course were they can prepare you but it won’t never happen. Sometimes I felt alone, confused, unloved, like a loser to be honest with you guys, but God, my family and some of my close friends helped me during such a crazy month. So if you are dealing with something major, let me tell you that you are not alone! You have God, friends, family people that believe in you and a purpose in this world.
So for this dear November I am taking it slow. Refocusing myself on what matters, like getting back to working out, eating healthier, sleeping more, spending more time with God I truly believe that having these foundations help to have a balanced life. Also I am learning more about blogging, content creation and influencer marketing, I want to make sure I’m not falling into the pattern of just taking photos, or just making pretty post but creating. Getting back to basics, to the foundation of what I want this platform to be.
I know this was probably a lot, but I wanted to share and give you guys a little update on my life, and If any of you guys are dealing with something know that you are not alone and you can overcome it. Not everything is picture perfect, or Instagram fabulous like I said earlier, we all have our days but we can make it through! I am hoping the best for this dear November and you should too!
Thank you guys for the love <3
